The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York, will open on 8th of March an impressive exhibition dedicated to the Icelandic artist, composer and singer Bjork.

The exhibition is cowritten by Bjork herself and the Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson and is curated by the famous Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large for MOMA and Director at MoMA PS1 (also responsible for the performance art event of Marina Abramovic The Artist Is Present).

“Björk is an extraordinarily innovative artist whose contributions to contemporary music, video, film, fashion, and art have had a major impact on her generation worldwide,” said Biesenbach. “This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work.”


Expect an amazing retrospective of the 20 years long career of Bjork displayed through objects, instruments, costumes, sound and image and, of course, performance. The exhibition’s high point will be a multimedia work of art developed with the director Andrew Thomas Huang and 3-D design leader Autodesk.


Bjork’s application Biophilia (2011) will be the first app to enter MOMA’s collection. “Biophilia is a hybrid software application and music album with interactive graphics, animation, and musical scoring. Created by Björk with M/M Paris, Sjón, Scott Snibbe, Kodama Studios, Touch Press, Relative Wave, Nikki Dibben, Stephen Malinowski,  and John F. Simon, Jr., it is the first app to enter the Museum’s collection, joining other digital design works such as fonts, video games, visualizations, icons, and custom interactive pieces”, announced MOMA.
